Abstract


In this paper, an automated platform for managing result of all categories of students in a seamless and interactive manner is presented. The system was developed using PHP, CSS, HTML, MYSQL and was hosted locally using Apache web server. The software development methodology adopted is a participatory incremental process model (PIP Model). The data used were obtained from the Department of Electrical/Electronic and Computer Engineering, University of Uyo. Functional decomposition of the system and its key modules are provided to explain the major functionalities proffered by the system. Also, use case diagram is presented to show the different categories of the system users and the various functionalities associated the different system user. Screen shots of various system functionalities are presented from the test run of the functional system.

Keywords
